if, indeed, any case at all, when
it was proposed to place upon the
stand John Lilley, who, it will be
remembered, had been previodsly
convicted of burglary and codsignod
to the penitentiary. The defence
objected, upon the ground that
Lilley was a convicted felon and
tliriihn'o incompetent to testify:
The judge sustaining this objection,
the solicitor produced a document
purporting to be a pardon for John

The pardon was graiitod "on coitdi

for the defendant objected on the
ground that it was really no pardon
at all. and after i rther aiscission by
the attorneys on' each side, Judge
Nort hrop decided that the docmieint
Was itldeed no pardon at all, and that,
therefore Lilloy was incompeteut as
a witness. A Chester correspondent,
of the Kaios and Covrier says :
"Thie most unfavorable comm1entr
were freely made on t,his document;
and the pro(ceeling of bringing theso
Convicts [.Iilloy and Mikell] to tes

ha:s now the puliic opinion onl his
side entirely." After argument upon
bot1h sides the ('110 was givtlli to the
